To most OG sneaker connoisseurs Kanye has no relevance because we were rocking signature sneakers before we even knew he existed. But he has definitely had an impact the newer generation of "sneakerheads."

Hype sells. Kanye generates hype. So his contributions to Nike, JB and every other sneaker he had garnered hype can't be ignored.

Yeah I'll be picking up the OG Flight Huaraches that release in a couple of weeks on sight. These I can fall back on 'til they get marked down.

I'm a sucker for gum bottoms and this is a nice subtle colorway. Not to high on loud colored sneakers like I used to be so these are a fresh take.

Just release the Miadidas customization option already. If they were going to allow people to customize their own Flux's they shouldn't have tipped there hand because the prints revealed thereafter have become not as intriguing.

Can't even knock his decision. He'll get a signature line, which I'm sure most players who endorse a shoe company hope for, a lot sooner with Adidas than he would with Nike and Jordan at the moment.

Those are pretty much the only major companies right now in regards to basketball in the states. Even though Under Armour has been trying to make some noise here lately by sponsoring collegiate and high school teams.

Yes they have! Too bad most of their recent 997-999 releases have been in super limited quantities making them damn near impossible to get.

Are you sure about that? I could of sworn these were one of the priciest sneakers to release, especially given the hype surrounding the pump movement at the time that Nike was trying to capitalize off of. I've never heard of these being $130 retail ever. As for for J's, of course they weren't $170. They had no reason to be.

The price seems fair enough considering they were about $175 when they first released. Nike will more than likely cut some corners to compensate for the pricing though. I'm not expecting the "pump" technology to be there but it'd be a plus if it were.

Jabari... see what you've gotten yourself into? I'm sure JB is going recommend or even require that their spokesmen bust these out on random occassions during the season.

The performance might be top notch though since that seems to be the theme. "The more hideous the sneaker, the greater they perform on the court."

Whether he was mediocre or not, baseball was one of MJ's passions so why not acknowledge that? Add the fact that he took a leap of action to pursue this passion at the risk of being average is commendable to say the least. It's just another episode in Jordan's pursuit of greatness.

I have no problem with it at all. I don't care for these but it looks like Baron themed Jordan's are here to stay.

Props to Reebok for acknowledging Keith Haring and his artistic influence from the mid 80's to early 90's. Those "squiggle" caricatures always take me back when I see 'em. I'm sure a lot of people wouldn't wear these but collectors would definitely see these as a compliment to their collection.

I haven't been a fan of the Jacquard line of Air Max products but these are decent. I probably still wouldn't pay retail for them but will be on the look out just in case they turn up for a discount.

I see Wiggins being more like Kawai Leonard than Kobe Bryant, maybe somewhere in between. Not necessarily a bad thing but whether or not it warrants a top 3 pick... we'll see in due time.

And there is nothing wrong with a man who knows his means. The only people who really suffer from the price hikes are those who have no discipline when it comes to buying these high dollar sneakers, just so they can get their Instagram "Likes" up.

Why do people believe it is their God given right to own every pair of hyped kicks most notably Jordan Retros? I do understand there are people out there with a lot more disposable income than others so they can afford to buy every release if they so desire, but for those of us on a budget there is absolutley nothing wrong with being more selective in your sneaker purchases.

At this current juncture price hikes (especially for better quality) won't put me in any financial binds, however. I will be picking my spots more carefully because I know my means. Rather than buying my usual 5-6 retros per year I'll only get 2-3 and so on and so forth until I'm inevitably priced out and even then there will be several other sneakers for me to throw my money at.
